Man of the Match is the eighteenth episode of Series 8.


Connor gives Imogen an engagement ring, but she is not keen for them to go public and instead gives him a necklace as a love token. They also contrive to get Christine and Michael back together. Kacey is due to play for the soccer team in a cup final, but Michael discovers that mixed teams are not allowed and orders Tom to pull her from the team. Tom defies him, but after Kacey has scored the winning goal, new pupil Zoe - who had previously mistaken her for a boy - kisses her, leading Barry Barry to make a pig-headed outburst, exposing the deception. However, Zoe has spotted that Kacey really wishes she was a boy, and, though staff and the football team are supportive, her ignorant brother accuses her of being a lesbian and a pervert. Sian rebukes him, and, seeing this as a challenge to his perceived masculinity, he follows her home to get revenge.
